tell us what excites you most about a career in manufacturing.

Technological innovation empowers us to make a positive difference in humanity's challenges in leading a sustainable future.

tell us about your journey and where you see your future.

I was born on the island of Jersey, surrounded by the sea and distant horizons. I fell in love with sailing in my youth as it gave me a sense of freedom and connection with nature.

Lightweight, innovative technology enables us to better harness and work in harmony with nature. This is exemplified by events such as the America's Cup, which intrigue me. My curiosity led to a degree in engineering (Marine and Composites Technology).

My career has brought me into ambitious transport engineering projects that can reduce emissions and costs, whilst promoting recycling and a move towards a circular manufacturing economy. Our team won a JEC innovation award in 2020, and I have become a STEM ambassador.

Our future lies in embracing technology through research, data collation and finding creative solutions. I hope my work contributes to these challenges and enables transport for all, while reducing environmental impact.

 


Director Dr Kevin Lindsey added: "It is wonderful to see one of our young engineer's efforts recognised amongst his peers. Sustainability at Far-UK is not solely about reducing environmental impact, but also equipping the next generation with the skills required to enable a better future for all."
